It has been a busy time down here at Glenelg South with some very exciting moments on the way. November brought with it some great commissions, a lovely launch party and even a little article in the paper.
2019 CLASS DATES ANNOUNCED
Term 1 classes for 2019 are officially online and ready to go. In addition to day classes where you can make your own earrings or bezel set pendant, I am also pleased to announce that my seven week beginner’s classes are now available. Handmade Jewellery for Beginners will run from 6-9PM on Wednesdays and is a great introduction to the world of jewellery making in a relaxed and social environment.
AN EXPERIENCE FOR CHRISTMAS?
Do you have a friend or relative who already has everything? Gift certificates for jewellery workshops are now available in store or through the class page of my website and are sure to please. The lucky recipient can choose a date which suits them and vouchers are valid for up to three years, so there is plenty of time to book in.
MENTORSHIP IN THE NEW YEAR
I am super excited to welcome Lilly Buttrose to be mentored at the studio gallery in 2019. Lilly is a textiles and jewellery artist working from JamFactory, Adelaide, and is the proud recipient of a Carclew Fellowship. This fantastic professional development grant will allow Lilly to travel to Japan to learn specialised weaving at the Kawashima Textile School, Kyoto, and upon her return work with me to develop new ways to combine her beautiful textiles with metal. You can read all about Lilly’s grant in the recent article published by Adelaide Now.
Thank you to everyone who made it along to my official launch soiree. It was such a wonderful event and great to have the support of my local council, community, friends and family. Thank you also to Emma Fey from Guild House who gave the most amazing opening speech and to everyone who helped to make the night go smoothly.
